We have seen many complaints on the Sims 4 forums out there regarding a strange problem that occurs in the game: the nudity pixelation aka EA’s censorship of The Sims 4 characters’ most intimate parts remains active throughout the game, making it entirely unplayable. Or, at least, very unpleasant to play. This bug has become known as the Sims 4 mosaic blur glitch or pixelation bug and I am here to share with you the details on how to fix that. Because you can do it manually before the developers release a patch that will actually fix it.

So in order to fix the mosaic blur glitch in The Sims 4 or the nude pixelation persisting problem, you have two options:

– First of all and the easiest of them all is to simply change the appearance of your Sims. Go to a mirror nearby and select the “Change Appearance” option. No matter if you change any clothes or not, after you click accept and get back to the game, the blur/pixelation of your character should be gone.

– If this doesn’t work, some users on forums dedicated to the game reported another possible fix. In order to do it, you will have to quit your game first, then head over to the install directory and find a file called TS4.par. Rename the file into The.Sims.4.Launcher.par – now restart your game and the problem should be solved.

Did you run into this mosaic blur glitch into The Sims 4? Have you managed to fix it using our methods? Let us know by commenting below!


  1. Change TS4.par to The.Sims.4.Launcher.par
    removes the blur

    But if you actually just delete the .par file that fixes everything

    You no longer get random crashes

    If you don’t believe this, Just move the file out of the folder or delete it and don’t empty your recycling bin till after you’ve tested it

    for good measure I delete the other unnecessary files in the documents folder
    C:Users”Your User”DocumentsElectronic ArtsThe Sims 4

    notify.glob, connectionstatus.txt, Userdata.lock
    These files are generated each time you launch the game
    Userdata.lock will be made again and undeletable till closed while running

  2. strange I try to find it in directory and see no TS4.par file, in Sims 4 folder, had update today and I cannot find install directory in Sims 4 folder
